Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Today is potentially brilliant for finding fresh solutions or alternative methods to do business, dear Aries, as well as for making home or family life run more smoothly. You’re successfully blending personal and professional goals or activities today, and you can find yourself devising plans and enjoying the design element of whatever you’re doing. There can be an opportunity to make yourself or family more secure, even if it’s only the first steps, and it’s an excellent time for working hard and enjoying the feeling of productivity. Later today, there is a tendency for people to confront one another about touchy topics. While it can be a little messy, it can be useful to address problem areas.
You’re in a good position to let go of grudges in the first half of the day, dear Taurus, or to connect well with friends, and come up with good ideas for handling your money or valuables. You seem to be able to satisfy both your needs to play it safe and venture out into new situations. This is an important day for entertaining new ideas and seeking out more meaning from your experiences. You can be thoroughly invested in a project, study, or venture, and you can make tremendous progress with this kind of dedication and focus. Later today, sensitive topics are likely to emerge, or something you hear or say hits a nerve. It may not be intentional, but the result is the same, and while a part of you wants to ignore it and move on, another part of you (or a person in your life) won’t let it go. In truth, addressing the issue can work in your favor.
Part of you is craving more intimacy or depth in your connections, but another part enjoys your freedom and independence today, dear Gemini. While this might typically pose a dilemma, you seem to be able to find the right middle ground or blend today, leading to a real feeling of satisfaction. It’s also a good time for developing your talents, working on a money-making venture, or putting effort into finding something lost or hidden. You might decide to work out an issue that’s been bothering you. On the one hand, there is a high potential to get somewhere and make progress on a problem, but on the other, people can be sensitive, and you might inadvertently open up another Pandora’s box in the process. Uncomfortable topics can emerge, but this also challenges you to put a grudge or insecurity behind you, whether these belong to you or someone else.
The first half of the day is quite excellent for expressing yourself, particularly on technical levels, dear Cancer. Personal matters can also go over nicely since you’re feeling a little freer and detached enough to express yourself well and make progress. Even so, later today, this energy reverses in some ways, and increased sensitivity may need addressing. Whether you decide to choose your words carefully or assert yourself and deal with the consequences, it’s a time for considering problem areas. You’re in a good position to team up with or otherwise cooperate with others to get things done. Attention to both your social life and your need for downtime can be much more straightforward than usual to pull off right now.
The Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Leo, bringing some pleasant liveliness to your world. As well, there can be good news or inspiration found in unusual places. Higher-ups might hold you in better favor right now. If you need backing or support, today is strong for getting it. Exhilarating experiences on the job or a sudden change in your reputation can occur for some of you. Blending your worldly affairs and your social life can be successful today, and with some creativity, you might even be able to combine the two. You can quickly become absorbed in what you’re doing. Later today, aim to confront your fears about past matters so that you’ll be better equipped to handle them when they reappear in your life.
The morning is potentially excellent for letting go of the negative and catching on to new and exciting ideas, dear Virgo. Relationships, business sense, and professional appeal get a boost. An intuitive understanding of people and trends positively affects your dealings now. You’re likely to engage an audience, group, or important person in your life. It’s a good time for learning new skills, particularly of a technical or scientific nature. Today is also excellent for creative power or dedication to a creative or design project. Drawing up plans can be exciting. Later today, there may be some disconnects to manage, but nothing you can’t handle. Get the facts before committing, and be particularly aware of what you say and of your personal soft spots since people, including you, are sensitive!
People may surprise you with a showing or friendly gesture today, dear Libra. Research can turn up something interesting or valuable, and business can get a boost as a result. Today is active for self-expression and pleasant surprises. There is outstanding energy for updating a project, mainly related to career or business, and a great love of research. Later today, a Mercury-Chiron square can tug at your doubts and insecurities, particularly about your ability to get your message across successfully or about what you know. It’s a time for seeing the ways that you might communicate that work against you, and making adjustments based on these insights makes sense now.
Conversations can be inspiring and even breakthrough in small ways today, dear Scorpio, or news may arrive that stirs your inner spirit. You are enjoying what you’re doing now, and it shows! You can make a lot of headway as a result. Sharing a similar viewpoint–or an entirely new one–can help strengthen a bond. You are more expressive than usual and in the mood to learn or teach. Your ability to convince or persuade others through your words or projects is mighty. Later today, we can be sensitive or easily triggered, and it may be necessary to be more precise than usual about your boundaries. Aim to feed restlessness through acquiring knowledge or differing your routine.
The first half of the day is particularly useful for focusing on opportunities, growth, and progress, dear Sagittarius. There is something quite upbeat about the morning as well, and you need a little break from the routine. Still, health and work can show signs of improvement, and the motivation to improve and advance is with you, fueling your good mood. As such, a bit of discipline and focus can be in order. You can accomplish far more than usual when you feel this dedicated. Later today, there can be some doubts to deal with regarding ideas and the ability to communicate your feelings effectively. Physical outlets for stress may be useful.
This can be a time when your ideas attract or draw others to you, dear Capricorn, or when someone with particularly interesting ideas is coming into your life. Changes of plans may turn out to be quite fun, inviting spontaneity into your life. As well, it’s a fine time for personal appeal and self-improvement efforts. You are willing to put in extra effort or to express your dedication in your relationships. Romantic excitement is very possible today. Conversations can be at the very least interesting and quite possibly very helpful. There can be intriguing news today. Later today, however, you may be dealing with some crankiness and sensitivity. Talks can quickly become emotional as Mercury and Chiron form a challenging square aspect.
There can be a psychic rapport with others today with a Mercury-Uranus aspect, dear Aquarius, or you might have a powerful sense of trends influencing your interactions and projects. You do quite well in your communications, and work or health-related ideas and methods can be notably progressive and useful. Alternatives can sometimes trip you up, making life feel a little too chaotic, but today they feel right, and you have a sense that opportunities are opening up to you. Part of you wants to get involved and engage with others now, but another strong urge is to lay low and keep to yourself. Somehow, you seem to be able to satisfy both needs, and quite creatively! Later today, conversations or interactions can challenge you to face certain insecurities, particularly related to communication or knowledge.
With a Mercury-Uranus aspect today, you’re in good shape for catching on to new thought waves or trends, dear Pisces, making your communications particularly timely and appreciated. You enjoy the people in your life a little more than usual now. Sharing ideas can strengthen a relationship. You can take particular pleasure in expressing your more unorthodox views, and fortunately, others are listening. Even so, later today can be somewhat awkward. Something you say can be taken the wrong way or news you hear pulls up conversations that you may not have expected to have. For some, there could be an uncomfortable interaction about money or boundaries. However, whatever might emerge now can help clear the air and get you to a better understanding of yourself or a situation.
